Great supplemental information for biological discussions in developmental psychology, or as a supplemental reading. Love the pop up definitions that do not interfere with the readings. Very straightforward. I have links to this site in our LMS for a couple of my classes'.

Although this is good reference material, it would be difficult for me to see how to assign it in a class. It doesn't really go deep enough to be other than introductory.
